It has become inanely evident that with T-Series you usually get one of two things. Things on the opposite end of the spectrum with extreme creativity and deliciousness, like Rudraksh or

Chameli, or the beaten up jhankar two decade old styled music that they release every so often. If Tumse Milke Wrong Number was mildly entertaining, Insaaf-The Justice, their next release falling in the later category is much less entertaining. Sometimes we pick up these soundtracks hoping for an in between the two with a little bit of old and new, as was featured in Tum Bin or

Aapko Pehle Bhi Kahin Dekha Hai. Look elsewhere, sadly, it is not here.

"Tujhe Pyar Itna" is your typical romantic opener in an album penned by Sameer of plenty typical numbers. Nikhil Vinay do nothing to make this song sound different from any T-Series song, from "Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam" or "Hum To Deewane" from

Kaash Aap Hamare Hote. Sonu Nigam sounds uninterested and Anuradha Paudwal could very well talk her way through this song since she has sung so many like them before. An instrumental of the song comes up later on.

While the opener reminded me of a few songs from Rajesh Roshan´s Koyla, "Dekha Hain Main To" does the same. Reminiscent of "Dekha Tujhe To". Again, though "Dekha Tujhe To" was the first song that came to mind, you´d be hard pressed to find a song of the genre that this one didn´t really sound like, both lyrically and music wise. Like the entire album, thanks to the saxophone, this song is pleasing to hardcore listeners of these orchestrated numbers but even then it will probably test your patience.

Shaadi song a must, "Chunri Lehrai Toh" serves to fit the bill for the nach dance with the two protagonists glorifying jewelry and each other. The song is filled with a fast paced dholak beat in the lines of all other such songs like "Kabhi Khan Khan Khan" from Aapko Pehle Bhi Kahin Dekha Hai. Again, why be creative when the song itself isn´t. Udit sounds a bit better than Alka who strains through the tipid song. An encore of the song ends off the soundtrack.

Of the boring rehashes of former songs, "Tumse Milna" can entertain though there is absolutely little to distinct it from previous songs. Perhaps the pairing of Udit Narayan and Anuradha has served better this time than Sonu and Anuradha previously. The has a more traditional feel to it and is catchy for whatever that may be worth in an ensemble of a soundtrack like this.

You´d almost be caught rubbing your eyes reading a title like "Chanke Khet Mein", thinking it was the song from Anjaam. It´s not nor is it even as interesting. Over blowing shehnai´s make this song, sung by Jaspinder Narula and Sapna Awasthi rustily boring with little appeal.

The final original song amongst the many repeats that end off the soundtrack is "Nazar Milna" sung by Sunidhi Chauhan and Udit Narayan. What the soundtrack was missing, an obligatory mellow song emphasizing sadness is filled. Look at this, you´ve got your complete Indian film all in one soundtrack. At least, that´s the way T-Series seems to look at it with their releasing of these repetitious trying soundtracks.

Insaaf-The Justice takes liking these types of songs to an extreme. It is the only way you will actually like it, let alone not feel jipped by purchasing it.
